Mileage Plus members can now register (for free!) for a nifty little service called “EasyUpdate.”
A winner of the 2002 Chicago Innovation Awards, EasyUpdate will contact you via email, phone, text message or fax to keep you posted on departure and arrival times, flight delays, cancellations, seat upgrades and more.
If you wish, you can even customize the program to send updates to your spouse, business assistant or work associates.
To register, simply go to http://www.united.com/easyupdate.
Did we mention it’s free?
